Ground rock phosphate has been used as a source of phosphorous for acid soils in the past. However, due to the low availability of phosphorousin rock phosphate, high transportation costs and small crop responses have reduced the usage of rock phosphate in agriculture. Alternatively, the rising diversified food demand amid rising population factors have challenged farmers to increase the crop output from the limited arable land. These factors have made farmers use chemical fertilizers,which in creased the demand for the fertilizer market.

After nitrogen, phosphorus is an essential macronutrient required for the optimum crop production with respect to fertilizer utilization. Phosphorus nutrient is a component of the complex nucleic acid structure of plants, which regulates protein synthesis. Phosphorus in plants is involved in the formation of sugars, oils, starches, etc., and it also helps with the rapid growth of plants. Various forms of phosphorous are applied to overcome the specific phosphorous nutrient deficiency in soils.

The major phosphatic fertilizers used are diammonium phosphate (DAP), monoammonium phosphate (MAP), superphosphates, and others. The Asia-Pacific region is a larger consumer of phosphatic fertilizers, which is expected to rise at a CAGR of 2.7% by volume and 3.5% by value for the forecasted period. Latin America demonstrates a strong growth potential in phosphatic fertilizer consumption after the Asia-Pacific region.

Commercial phosphate fertilizers are manufactured using phosphate rock. Approximately two- third of the worlds’ phosphate resources are derived from sedimentary and marine phosphate rock deposits, and about 90% of the global phosphate rock demand is used for food production. Phosphorus is scarce and phosphate rock is a non-renewable resource. Market forces and political regulations may affect its availability.

The global phosphate fertilizers demand is increasing due to the growing world population and increasing food demand. Increasing milk and meat consumption in the world has necessitated large feed volume that in turn has increased the demand for maximum forage production. The global demand for phosphate fertilizers is projected to grow by 3.2% annually, from 2013 to 2018.

In 2012, the global phosphorous fertilizer market generated a value of $96,505.5 million and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 2.4% by 2018. The market was led by super phosphatewith the fastest growing CAGR and market share. In 2012, diammonium phosphate was a market leader in Asia-Pacific. The market was led by Asia-Pacific in 2012.
